Plum Blossom Barrettes


As someone who obsesses over fine papers and textiles, I repeatedly am blown away by the beauty and intricacy of Japanese papers and fabrics. And now you can introduce the latter art form to your little one by way of the amazing vintage Japanese hair clips and barrettes from Craftsbury Kids. These new clips and barrettes feature “ume” (Japanese plum blossoms) that have been hand crafted from vintage Japanese silk kimonos. Single ume clips are $9 and triple ume barrettes (shown) are $16.
